Here’s why Jennifer Lopez was reportedly in a rush to marry Ben Affleck

Jennifer Lopez (or should we say Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck?) and Ben Affleck make no secret of the fact that they’re living their best lives right now. Since they decided to give their love a second chance in Spring 2021, they’ve stepped on the gas in their relationship. Lopez’s engagement rings had fans green with envy in April, and on July 16, Lopez and Affleck got married (though their wedding plans don’t seem quite over just yet). However, a source told People that while things appear to be moving quickly for the couple, they have no honeymoon planned at the moment. The tipster said: “Jennifer says every day with Ben is a honeymoon. She’s looking forward to growing old with Ben.”

And while Lopez and Affleck’s fans couldn’t be happier for the newlyweds, there seems to be another reason they decided to rush down the aisle, to everyone’s surprise. That’s because Lopez had serious doubts about Affleck and what he might have done next if she hadn’t acted quickly.

Jennifer Lopez was worried Ben Affleck might not make it down the aisle

According to Page Six, Jennifer Lopez wanted to marry Ben Affleck pretty quickly, simply because she was worried that if they didn’t do it now, it would never happen. A source close to the situation said: “[Lopez] has been ready to get married since the night Ben proposed to her. She wanted to wrap this up and eliminate any chance of getting cold feet as soon as possible!”

Then again, no one should be surprised that Lopez felt that way, especially considering her history with Affleck. As many may recall, Lopez and Affleck called off their first wedding in 2003, per Us Weekly, and eventually pulled the plug on their relationship a few months later in January 2004. But now it seems like they’re about to win it. In February, Lopez spoke about Affleck like never before when she admitted she was lucky to get a second chance with the love of her life.

She told People, “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we are in different places in our lives, we have kids now and we have to be very aware of these things. We’re so protective because it’s such a beautiful time for all of us.”
